Steve Grand Puts Nude Spin On Ice Bucket Challenge

1662320_281963098667966_8628368991076029824_nIf you’re among those who have been ambivalent about taking the fund-raising Ice Bucket Challenge due to the severe drought plaguing parts of the world, you can count Steve Grand among your number. Still, the first openly gay country singer has found a way to support the charity, which has raised nearly $100 million for the ALS Association, that makes us want to follow suit. Grand, no stranger to stripping off his clothes, put his own spin on the popular challenge and jumped into the icy waters of Lake Superior following a show in nearby Duluth, Minnesota.

The photogenic entertainer later posted a photo and the following message to his Facebook page:

I don’t always get naked, but when I do, it’s for a good cause. I didn’t want to waste fresh water (since there are so many without) so naturally, I jumped into Lake Superior, naked, after my performance here in Duluth, MN. Video to come soon. I’m donating to ALS (visit alsa.org/donate) as well as 2 other charities I am passionate about. (Thewaterproject.org and a local LGBTQ homeless youth charity). I nominate ALL of you, to find a charity you are passionate about (in addition to ALS), do your research, and donate according to your means. Love you all!  -Steve

Did you catch that? There’s video to come! In the meantime, watch other celebs take the challenge here and here.

      Steve Grand has been such a let down. As a huge country fan I was SO excited that there was a openly gay country singer.

      But he turned the fame into him just milking his body and appearance rather than music.

      I have to ask: Has this guy been linked sexually/romantically to another guy at all? Maybe I’m just a bit jaded, but there’s something that feels so…I don’t know, “gay for pay” about him.

      Pop/Country crossover artist Steve is the Total Package (with or without towel)…talent, intelligence, personality and non-stop sexual hotness!

      Oh yeah, I forgot. The gay community doesn’t seem to understand when someone’s 15 minutes are up.

      I love how a well-meaning campaign for a good cause quickly turned into an exercise in narcissism for so many people, famous or otherwise. At least ALS got some good money out of this. Hopefully, it will last them until next year when everyone will have moved on to the next social media trend.

      He definitely oozes something. It is called narcissism. News flash mr. Grand: “your 15 minutes of fae based on your looks and not anything remotely close to talent is over. Stop desperately trying to extend it.” He should graceful disappear.

      @sportsguy1983: Sorry, but if his “15 minutes of fame” are over, then that means Kim Kardashian and all the other talentless garbage we call “celebrities” nowadays should have worn out their 15 minutes of fame a VERY long time ago. At least his tits and ass aren’t plastered everywhere on the Internet.

      Steve does have an ok face, and nice body. But that does not equate to being sexy. To me he’s not someone who oozes sex appeal.
